Beautiful rug, nice quality. Colors are right on the money, the online photo is just slightly duller than the real thing. The black stripes have some charcoal mixed in, and the wide gray waves have a little bit of an olive undertone. The vanilla wave is in between a gold and vanilla. We're painting the room a lighter shade of vanilla and I can't wait to see it completed! I would recommend this rug to anyone with a contemporary decor (we're using it in an office).
